ST AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA:

Located at the stunning Flagler College campus, with the beautiful historic City of St Augustine as our backdrop, students will learn the art and craft of storytelling and filmmaking. Our days will interweave practical instruction with pull out focus sessions all building to the completion of their festival level films.

During their down time students will enjoy dinner and movies at the historic Corazon theater and a fun schedule of after class activities and experiences.

Instruction in screen writing, cameras and cinematography, direction and production will be interwoven with an exploration of this remarkable region.

In this intensive hands-on course, students work with industry professionals as they learn how to write, produce, direct, film, edit and master a short film in preparation for festival entry.

Students are split into crews of appropriate age and experience, with an individualized curriculum. Many of our students have won film festivals with the work they achieve in these PreCollege courses – perfect for ongoing college applications!

We have options for Day students and Residency students. Residency students stay in college dorms.

TRANSYLVANIA, ROMANIA

Nestled in the heart of Romania, Count Kalnoky’s Castle and Guest House in the Transylvanian Village of Mikslovar/Miclosoara is our base for this unique filmmaking experience.

Instruction in screen writing, cameras and cinematography, direction and production will be interwoven with an exploration of this remarkable region. Field trips include Bran Castle, the legendary, fictional home of Bram Stokers Count Dracula. Alma Cave in the Gorge of the Vargyas River where legend says the Pied Piper hid the children of Hamelin and a trip to the beautifully preserved Saxon Village of Viscri, a UNESCO world heritage site.

Transylvania truly is a living film set and we’ve been given a unique opportunity to use this stage for our 2019 Pre College film making experience.
